Residential Space Over 3,500 Square Feet: Sandra Espinet, Allied Member ASID
Designed by Sandra Espinet of Interiors by Sandra Espinet, Casa Walker is a Spanish Mediterranean villa that integrates its beautiful beachfront surroundings by bringing the outdoor environment inside the home. The open floor plan and covered terraces flood the home with natural light, blurring the lines between Casa Walker surroundings and interior. High ceilings open up the house and create a feeling of grandeur that is paralleled only by the view of the infinity pool disappearing into the ocean. Billowing cabaña curtains frame the courtyard terraces, adorned with rich furnishings, while the custom designed cabinetry in the kitchen gives the home an added feeling of luxury. Casa Walker aesthetic is both eclectic and traditional, blending beautifully crafted furniture with antiques in a style that is all its own. (813/322-0113, [email protected])
